Yes, dogs can develop allergies at any time of the year, Usually, it will build up silently over a period of time without signs, then when a critical mass is attained from yet another exposure to an allergen (grass, pollen,food, a chemical or insecticide, bedding, etc.) the symptoms will manifest. It's due to a reaction of the allergen protein with IgE antibody on the surface of mast cells and release of histamine and other vasoactive peptides. These molecules can acutely cause sneezing, wheezing, rash, hives, itchy skin, etc. Some times of the year are classically associated with allergies due to the significant release of pollen and exposure to a variety of erupting highly allergenic grasses and weeds (e.g., ragweed), but it is not just at these more common times of the year.

Yes. Call your vet before giving any OTC meds. They are often adding sugar substitutes to meds now, especially children's, that are deadly to dogs.
Now that is an answer.
